“N” – A to Z Challenge


No snow in my neighborhood…yet. Colorado is under a winter storm warning and apparently it is snowing in some parts of the Denver metro area, but not up in my neck of the woods. But if the forecasters are correct, we are to get our fair share by the time Monday rolls around.


nI guess this is okay. I’m stocked up with food, I am warm and have electricity, I have plenty to do around the house, there’s always Bible study and prayer and of course, spending time with my hubby. Holed up in the house is an okay thing today.


Now that my family and friends across the country know that we aren’t buried in a foot of snow, I can think about what I really want to talk about this morning.


In the small Book of Nahum, there’s a beautiful verse, a reminder for each of us to cling to when we face turmoil, struggle or disappointment. These are words to memorize, place in your heart and believe whole-heartedly.


“The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him…” (Nahum 1:7 – NIV)


This book goes on to share what was going to happen to Nineveh for their rejection of God. God’s plan was to destroy this city. Jonah was sent to give the message of its destruction. And in the end, the people of Nineveh repented and turned to God. They placed their trust in Him. They recalled God’s goodness. They believed He was their refuge. They knew God could deliver them from their times of trouble.


Do you turn to God when you’re facing trouble? Is He your refuge? Do you trust that God cares for you? Do you trust Him?


When the storms of this life threaten, who is it that you turn to? When trouble is looming, in whom do you trust? When uncertainty is knocking at your door, who is your refuge?


For all of these questions, I pray that your answer is God. I pray that you know that God is the One who cares the most, is able to do the most, and who is willing to provide all that you need when you need it.


No snow now, but that may change as the day goes on. But regardless of what the weather is doing outside, I know that I have the peace of God inside. I pray that you do as well.


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
